Gentle classics for reading.

Gentle music makes a perfect accompaniment to reading. This selection has been chosen with the reader in mind. Many of the tracks began life with a literary theme or programme, taken from old legends, from Shakespeare's tales or from famous books. These works are interspersed with other characterful pieces which reflect a quiet mood or a scene from nature.
